The show is described as a raw, powerful and intimate look at Bieber’s process of creating new music and the motivation for the new album told through the lens of his closest confidants, friends, collaborators and Bieber himself. The series will also feature a behind-the-scenes look at Bieber’s private life, including never-before-seen footage of his wedding to Hailey Bieber and his day-to-day alongside those in his inner circle. With brand new music scoring the episodes, Justin reflects on the trials and triumphs of growing up in the public eye as he invites his fans on the journey leading up to the release of the highly-anticipated and most personal album of his career.
